The purpose of the Office of Emergency Management is to execute responsibilities to maintain an emergency services system by planning, preparing and providing for the prevention, mitigation and management of emergencies or disasters that present a threat to the lives and property of citizens of Jefferson County. Jefferson County recently began a new planning effort to develop a comprehensive Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS).
The purpose of this plan is to develop proposals for new projects or programs to eliminate or minimize the vulnerabilities of the communities of Jefferson County to the impacts of future natural, technological, and manmade disasters. Planning and emergency management officials are hoping that members of the community, including business interests throughout the area, will share their experiences and perspective on the impacts of past disasters, as well as how the communities of Jefferson County are vulnerable to future disasters.
